What’s New in “Apex Legends” Season 9

Developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts, Apex Legends is a free-to-play battle royale game in which players drop from aircraft to the surface of the game map, scavenge for weapons and other equipment, and then fight to be the last team remaining. The game has received mostly positive reviews and is perceived by many to be the main competitor to Epic Games’ Fortnite. One of the most praiseworthy features in Apex Legends is the innovative non-verbal “ping” communication system making voice chat less necessary to coordinate with teammates.

Released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, and Xbox One in 2019, on Nintendo Switch in 2021, and anticipated releases for Android and iOS by 2022, Apex Legends takes place in the same universe as Respawn’s other well-known game titles, Titanfall and Titanfall 2. Apex Legends features competitive combat gameplay between up to 20 three-person squads or as many as 30 two-person duos.

The current season of Apex Legends (Season 8) is expected to end on May 3rd, meaning Season 9 is less than a month away. People are already speculating about it. For example, ‘May the 4th’ is commonly associated with honoring the Star Wars series (May the 4th is a pun on “May the Force be with you.”), so it’s been suggested that Season 9 may include cross-over content from the Star Wars universe. This wouldn’t even be that strange considering Respawn Entertainment developed Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

On the other hand, it would be unusual for any Star Wars characters to appear in Apex Legends. Maybe in Fortnite. But cosmetics like a Jedi robe costume could theoretically make an appearance. As with every new season, there should be new weapon skins, weapon Charms, Skydive Emotes, Finishers, and music. These would likely be earned through the Battle Pass.

So far there’s still not much confirmed yet, but there are some things we know for sure, and some things that we are fairly confident are coming. For example, it’s likely that a Battle Pass will cost 950 Apex Coins as each season’s Battle Pass has cost this amount. And though it’s not yet known for sure, it is expected by quite a few Apex Legends players that there will be a new map released.

As for what’s not certain, there are rumors that Blisk (a character in Titanfall 2) may be the next Legend added to the game, as an unofficial video was released of a character calling a Titan as a special ability. That said, Respawn Entertainment has said in the past that they have thought about adding Titans into Apex Legends but decided not to because it was too difficult to balance. So maybe they’ve finally figured out a way to do it?
